announced: 23. 05. 2016


Despite the fact that current debate on the usage of religious symbols in Europe is focused primarily on Muslims and Muslim symbols, other religions including Judaism have been manifesting their faith through the use of religious symbols as well, albeit less apparently. In this contribution, first, the judicature of the European Court of Human Rights related to religious symbols will be explored.Then a brief overview of Jewish religious symbols as expressed by garments will be given. Finally, national legislature and judicature of national courts will be covered in relevant countries, including France and Germany.
